Hampshire County Council is responsible for the issue of all Blue Badges in the district.
The Blue Badge scheme provides a national range of parking concessions for disabled people with severe mobility problems who have difficulty using public transport - it is designed to help severely disabled people to travel independently, as either a driver or passenger, by allowing them to park close to their destination.
- You can apply for or renew a Blue Badge online at gov.uk.
Alternatively, an application form can be downloaded from the Hampshire County Council website.
The application process can be tracked online, and includes questions to check your eligibility for a Blue Badge. All badges are issued by Hampshire County Council and cost £10 to cover administration and production.
Disabled parking bays

Disabled parking bays feature a sign next to them which reads 'disabled badge holders only'. It is a requirement to display a valid Blue Badge at all times whilst parked in an enforceable disabled parking bay.
Any motorist found parked in a disabled bay without displaying a valid Blue Badge is liable to receive a parking fine.

Once your application is received you will be contacted by an officer to arrange a visit to your property, if necessary, to discuss your application. You will be informed in writing if your application is approved or the reason for your application’s refusal.
If your application is approved it can take between 8-10 weeks for the marking to be installed by our contractor.
